The Camellia Rose Inn: 120 Years of Ownership History

The Camellia Rose Inn 🌹 120 years of history ✨

Did you know the Inn was originally known as the Swearingen House?

Built in 1903 by Thomas J. Swearingen who owned one of the first automobile dealerships in Gainesville, lived in the original house for 15 years. Swearingen then sold to grocer George A. Dell who sold it 3 years later to a wholesale grocer Hal C. Batey who would later became a mayor of Gainesville. 36 years later the house was bought by Dr. Oliver Austin, during this time many changes were made to the house and in 1978 new owners Mark & Mary Barrow restored the old Swearingen House. 28 years later the house was purchased by Pat and Tom McCants and whom renamed it to the Camellia Rose Inn. The McCants shared this beautiful home with many visitors to Gainesville and out the ground work for what it is today! The Camellia Rose inn is now owned by a local Gainesville Company @staygainesville & Southern Comfort Properties who believed the Camellia Rose Inn would be a wonderful addition to their short-term properties, bringing you your home away from home 🏡❤️ #gainesvillehistory #gnvhistoricdistrict #gnvhistory
